“Every human is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do.”

– William Ellery Channing, 1780-1884

A late comer to the writing scene, Barbara explores different genres from contemporary romance, children’s books, paranormal worlds, and does a little delving into science-fiction and some poetry. Having lived just outside Venice (Carnevale ), it seemed  appropriate to let the masks represent the different worlds she would like to inhabit or at least write about.

Currently she is busy writing about her experiences as a budding writer and life in general in the Amorina Rose blog.  On days ending in ‘y’ she is found hard at work on The Unexpected series and wondering why it has taken her so long to do something she loves so much.
